We had been to the Chophouse
We had been to the Chophouse several years ago. It was coming close to our anniversary so we decided to go again. We are very glad we did and will visit again and it will not be that long down the road either.

very good place..smells like a pool
very good experience but just one thing....the whole place smells like chlorine..Like the pool next door, no kidding. I'm am not sure how to fix it but I would have an HVAC guy look into it ..maybe an air exchange with the outside because it really takes away from what is otherwise a very nice restaurant

Very nice meal. Could not understand however why we were not able to get a 6:00 reservation when the restaurant was practically empty when we arrived at 6.

Hostess was very friendly. Asked me how to pronounce my last name since it is pretty tricky. My girlfriend is an extremely picky eater but loved the food. Good experience!

Great experience for special occasi
I thought the food was great except on of the sides. We ordered the fried brussel sprouts. iI thought there was way too mush balsamic vinegar in the dish. I love balsamic vinegar but it was over powering for me. I would change the dish by roasting the sprouts and lightly drizzling the sprouts with the vinegar. Still top with the goat cheese.
Two of us ordered the filet with a bernaise and king crab topper. Very good. I would get again. My.daughter shared the porterhouse and beef Wellington. She liked the porterhouse more.
All of us had excellent bread and salads. Wedge excellent, Caesar excellent and spinach excellent

Great food and service
My husband and I celebrated my birthday which happened to fall on a Monday night so it was relatively quiet -- I'm sure the atmosphere is much different on a weekend evening.
I ordered an 8 oz. Filet prepared medium = Steak Au Poivre (Rubbed with Cracked Telicherry Black Pepper,
Pan Roasted with Martell Cognac & Porcini Mushrooms ) along with a side of sea scallops. The side of black truffled risotto was so good I could have made a meal of that alone.
The entire entree was excellent.
My husband had the Pan Roasted Sea Scallops (Roasted Butternut Squash Risotto, Prosciutto, Black Truffle) which was also excellent.
The menu was pricey but both the food and service were superb ($150+) -- I would definitely go back to this restaur

I went there on the recommendation of my date who had been there before. The ambiance was romantic and relaxing. The service was outstanding; Mark was our server and he was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about everything. We asked him about two wines and we ended up getting his suggestion, which was lovely. The food was incredible, just amazing. For starters, we had the tuna tartare; it was exceptional. For dinner, I had the filet and my date had the NY strip; both were very delicious and cooked to perfection. We ordered the black truffle risotto, which was equally good. After dinner, we each got an espresso, which was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. The whole experience was wonderful and I will definitely be back.

My family had a special request and it was accommodated. This was a truly an amazing dining experience and an evening of wonderful memories for my family!

I love that this restaurant allows you to take your time with cocktails, appetizers, meal and dessert. It never feels like they're rushing you out to turn the table, so we're able to relax and enjoy our time out that much more.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
not up to snuff
We have been to this restaurant many times before. This time half of the items were "off" in taste. The mushroom soup which they are famous for did not taste as savory-tasted more like cream. The salad dressing on the caesar salad was too salty. The veal oscar was not scrumptous as in times before--it was not seasoned enough. The filet was cooked to perfection! The creme brulee dessert did not have enough vanilla bean in it -if any vanilla at all. Just tasted like pudding. The servers were attentive, but we left feeling that something was not right. We will spend our money at Flemings or Ocean Prime in the future.

Awesome as usual
Have never been disappointed at the NoVI Chophouse, service and food is always amazing!
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I thought the restaurant was very good. the service was good in that the waiter was not at our table every 5 minutes but he also made sure that we had everything we needed and then left us alone to enjoy our dinner. I thought the menu had just enough to pick from but not too much that it took 20 minutes to read and decide. the food was very good and the portions werent overwhelming. we would probably come here again on a special occasion. Thank you

Every time we eat at the No. VI Chophouse, we are not disappointed. This place has good food! The morel mushroom soup is amazing. This time I had the duck breast with cashew granola, sarsaparilla marshmallow, sweet potato brûlée and beet. I will be getting it again! The duck was cooked to perfection and so very tasty with the accompaniments. My husband had the signature dish of lamb and lobster tail. It was the best lobster I've ever had. Everything was cooked to perfection. The almond panda cotta dessert was to die for. Also, the staff is always very knowledgable, attentive and polite.

Amazing food, great service, lovely and romantic. The food is cooked how you ask it to be cooked. Very friendly staff.

Best in Town
The Novi Chop house consistently delivers. Their tuna prepared au poire is the best in the mid-west. My wife and I love this place!

We return to the Novi Chophouse
We return to the Novi Chophouse as the food is outstanding. We were treated to an appetizer for our anniversary and the crab cakes were delicious. As we were sharing this item it was brought to the table already divided and care was taken and the presentation was impressive.
The waiter took time to explain wine options and a tasting was done to insure we would choose well between the two options. Not patronizing, just informative.
The room is romantic, but perhaps a bit too dark.

IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE WONDERFUL
IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. I ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF DINING. IT IS A NICE ROMANTIC SPOT. A LITTLE COSTLY BUT NICE.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were there for dinner on Father's Day and as usual, it was a delight. Our server Jen was attentive without being a pest and made sure we had everything we needed. We each ordered the "featured dinner" that evening of Filet and Lobster Tail. It was perfectly cooked, and flavorful. Our deserts of Crème Brule' and Hot Fudge Cream Puff were perfect.
Once again, our compliments to Executive Chef Jeremy and to Pastry Chef Emily for a wonderful night out. We will be back! :)

Romantic Anniversary Celebration
My husband and I celebrated our wedding celebration at the Novi 6 Chophouse. It has the perfect ambiance for a romantic dinner due to the linen table cloths, candles on each table, professional staff, and the overall rich dark color decor/dim lighting of the restaurant. The food and service were great, and it is now one of our favorite special occasion restaurants choices of the Epicurean Group Restaurants.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Service, good food
Visited No. VI for the second time. We were seated in the back dining room, which is on the other side of the wall from the hotel pool. We did hear the occasional sounds of kids playing at the pool; not a big deal but might be for someone trying for a very romantic dinner. The service from Matt was excellent; attentive but not intrusive. My wife and I both had filets. Both were cooked perfectly. While they were very good, I felt the flavor was not as good as you get at Ruth's Chris.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
It has been a long time since I've been this impressed. The atmosphere was gorgeous. The service was outstanding, the waiter cleaned up our crumbs in between courses. The food was unbelievable, i would suggest everyone try the Cowboy Steak well done.

Birthday Meal Beyond Compare
This was our first visit to the Novi Chop House. After reading reviews and recommendations from friends we decided to try it to celebrate my birthday. We were greeted by friendly hostess and the server Brent was beyond words. His mouthwatering descriptions of each menu item was impressive. He is the epitome of the perfect server. From the appetizer to the entree, there are no complaints. Our filets were to die for. They melted in your mouth. I think you could have cut them with a fork they were so tender. It was well work the 30 minute drive and we look forward to our next meal there.

Great food and service. The chlorine smell in the hotel is offensive though and did carry into the restaurant. The place was dead on a Saturday night which kind of made the energy of the place pretty low and made it feel kind of weird.

Wonderful service, best soup!
My husband and I ate here on a Friday night and had a great experience. Our waiter was very attentive and brought us more bread and refilled our waters constantly, as I was 9 months pregnant at the time so required a lot of water refills. :) The mushroom soup was the best I've ever had, although it was lukewarm when served. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the flavors in the Parisian Gnocchi, and my husband said that the filet mignon was excellent and cooked to perfection. While we did not enjoy the notable wine list since I was due any day, we did take advantage of the delectable dessert menu. The chocolate lava cake was served with ice cream and a wonderful almond cookie. We will definitely be back!

Intimate and romantic
We were looking for a restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere was upscale, intimate and romantic. The food was outstanding as was the service.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our third visit to the Novi Chophouse, and the first since they relocated. The new atmosphere is very nice, if a little on the dark side. The waitstaff was fantastic - our server was knowledgeable and attentive, and the other staff was quick to pick up empty dishes, refill our waters, etc.
My husband had the Beef Wellington, while I opted for the Steak au Poivre. Both dishes were cooked to medium as requested. We also ordered the garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed asparagus as side dishes. I had the flour less chocolate fudge cake for dessert and it was tasty and the perfect size for one person.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back in the future. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
When checked in felt like the host was judging me because of maybe my age
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good experience
Service was very good. Only problem was that we asked for separate bills and it was not done. The mushroom bisque was absolutely excellent. Even though all four of us are vegetarians we had a very good dining experience and nice choices. It was a bit dark and we had to use a pen light.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wondetful dining experience
Food was fabulous, great wine, and the server, Brent, is a pro and one of the best that I've experienced.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my favorite steakhouse in Michigan. Food was amazing as always. I was a little upset with the service in the beginning, our waitress seemed to have a bad attitude and took more than 10 minutes to greet us and take our drink order. But she for better as the night went on.
Overall I love this place and recommend it highly.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice restaurant strange location
Great food and service. Unfortunate that the hotel the restaurant is located in takes a way from the experience. Not like other Crown Plaza's I've seen. Looks like a low budget motel from the outside.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mediocre service. Slow night, yet it still took 25 minutes to see a dessert menu after plates were cleared. Loud large family with kids placed near us - would have been nice to get privacy considering there were a handful of people in the restaurant, and large tables in empty sections.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorite places
The service and food at the NoVI Chophouse is always outstanding! We always have a wonderful experience.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here for our one year anniversary. Service was great and server was knowledgeable about the food and beverage selections; he was attentive to our body language when we needed something i.e. refills & check but was not constantly interrupting our conversation.
No complaints on the food - it all tasted great and was cooked appropriately.
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Brent was the waiter we had. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. He provided EXCELLENT service.

We were there to celebrate
We were there to celebrate a birthday with a party of five. Everything about the experience was excellent, including the beautifully written :Happy Borthday" on the celebrant's dessert plate. The coffee was especially good. The ambience was perfect and the sound level, even when the restaurfant was full, was so quiet. There was a big, loud party down the hall, and we heard nothing in the restaurant! It just always felt intimate, never rushed, and comfortable!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a great experience!
We had a great experience! The wine list has a number of reasonable choices, and the liquor list is wonderful-great bourbon choices! The superstar of the meal was the portabella mushroom appetizer. Unbelievable-it should not be missed. The dud was the pork belly-fatty and not good. But the salads, fish and meat choices are great. Our server was also knowledgable and entertaining.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM

Sometimes you just have to accept that if you want a really memorable night with great food, you will have to pay for it. Highly recommended.
